What is the CFP® mark?

More training. More experience. Tested knowledge.

A CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional is a financial professional who meets the requirements established by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc.

  • Hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university
  • Complete a Certified Financial Planner Board-registered education program
  • Pass the 10-hour CFP® certification exam
  • Have at least three years of qualifying full-time work experience in financial planning
